It’s Looking Like We Might Not Have Pac-12 Football If It’s Up To California

PASADENA, CA - OCTOBER 06: Defensive back Quentin Lake #37 of the UCLA Bruins can't stop running back Myles Gaskin #9 of the Washington Huskiesas he runs into the end zone for a touchdown in the second quarter of the game at the Rose Bowl on October 6, 2018 in Pasadena, California.

I have a gripe to pick. First let’s read the two below tweets:

Then let’s review my brother and I reacting to these tweets:

Basically there is a zero percent change if this is all true that UCLA, CAL play during the fall. At the same time, this means most likely Stanford and USC would follow suit. That would turn the Pac-12 to the Pac-8 and with Washington State (my home) and Oregon (who already said there would be no football with fans through September) being echo chambers for California you might as well cross off Washington, Washington State, Oregon and Oregon State from playing Pac-12 football this season. This would make it the Pac 4 and those teams probably would end up just saying screw it and not playing either.

The issue here is that we are making decisions about September in May. There are students who pay upwards of $70k a year to attend these schools. They should not pay to attend online classes (this is not what they paid for). Also, any player who has committed to one of these schools should be able to transfer to any school they want to transfer to. I am beyond livid by the irresponsible actions of the state of California controlling their citizens. This is wrong. If we enter Mid July or Early August and it turns out we should close campuses then I am more than welcome to do that. But to make this decision 4 months early? This is a state reaching for control of their citizens. Controlling citizens plus one of the nations highest income taxes.. why would you ever live in California?
